A group of L3707 members recently returned from the IAFF Affiliate Leadership Training Summit in Los Angeles. This conference is two full days of learning, networking, and training to help Monterey Firefighters serve our communities better, keep our firefighters safer, and keep up to date on current issues that affect us all. One current issue the IAFF is working to improve upon is mental health for first responders. Post Traumatic Stress was not often spoken of in the past, leading to firefighter suicide. As an organization, we are working to develop processes for members to decompress after years of stressful calls. We are fortunate to have the IAFF providing excellent resources for this cause.
